Canonsburg, PA - Printscape Arena at Southpointe is proud to announce the “Larger Than Life” Southpointe Historic Mural that will be showcases at the Arena. The mural captures the history of Southpointe from 1796 to the present with the mural consisting of five 9’ high x 6’ wide frames on the wall behind the seating at the Printscape Arena in Southpointe. The Southpointe Historic Mural appears to be painted on the wall extending for a total width of 30’ but is really the new technology utilized by Printscape Imaging & Graphics.
The origin of the Southpointe Historic Mural dates to 1796 when Colonel George Morgan built the first home in the Southpointe area of Canonsburg. Colonel Morgan (1743-1810) was assigned to Fort Pitt to oversee diplomacy during the American Revolutionary War negotiating with Native American Tribes in Western Pennsylvania to gain their support for the Americans vs. the British during the war. With additions to the original home, it was known as Morganza.
